We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have recovered from the overeating.

We have received a few inquiries regarding the names of our old and new adoption agencies. We have no problem sharing this information, but would prefer to do it via e-mail. So, if you wish, leave a comment for us and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Broccoli Guy (who's blog you may reach via a link to the right) who recently returned home with their son from Vietnam. What a Thanksgiving!

As for us, our social worker has everything she needs to finish writing the homestudy report. We are hoping to have it this week. If all goes well, we will have paperwork in Hanoi by Christmas!

Also, I have gone on about how we have requested a boy. We have now changed our preference to either gender. Since we are in on the ground floor with our new agency, and they have reportedly just begun working with a new orphanage that might have babies ready for international adoption, it made sense. Our prior choice was based upon the fact that so many more people want girls than boys and was designed to reduce our wait time while with the old agency. We are so much further up a waiting list now that we might be referred a child of either gender. We will leave it to a higher power, though I suspect we will still be referred a boy because we are open to it. It is exciting and we will welcome whatever news comes our way.

Many congratulations on your switch and I am happy to hear you should get your home study soon! I am interested in your old vs. new agency since we switched as well.

Sounds like you made a great choice to switch! I am also interested in the agencies, we are just beginning and in the process of choosing an agency now.

If you go to my profile, you will see a link that says EMail. Click on that link and it should open a window in which to email me. I would rather not publish the other email address I have.
